How the items you donate support the vulnerable of Northampton

Your donated Food is used in 2 of our projects; Our Hand Up service for the homeless and our FoodClub

During the harvest and Christmas periods a lot of this can be delivered directly to our food warehouse rather than to our Ash Street offices and during this period we will tell you how to do this on social media and on this site. Out of these busy times please get in touch to find out when and where to donate your items

Clothes (including shoes): Priority is always given to the homeless community and their needs. Stock is sorted and all items needed by the HandUp service is transferred directly to them. Additional stock is then utilised by our charity shop.

We have opened an innovative charity shop where alongside general sales, people on low incomes are able to buy clothes at discount rates under a membership scheme, as we do with some food through our Food Club.

The charity shop is also a vital part of the Learning for Living program and acts as a training provider for service users.

Income generated by the shop ensures the long term survival of the charity and is very successful part of our social enterprise business.

Other items: We will take bric a brac and other items to sell in the shop. We welcome work wear, especially boots; plus torches.

Talk to us through facebook or by phone in regard to bedding, children’s items, tents and sleeping bags. We may be able to help.

We will place appeals either on this site or on social media for other specific items we need.


You can donate by recycling goods: Check this out here:
